of the trayvon martin murder trial. it's the first full day for george zimmerman's defense team, which say they could rest their case as early as wednesday. zimmerman is pleading not guilty to second-degree murder charges, citing self-defense. well, today the defense team called witness after witness, including trayvon's father, tracy martin, in an attempt to counter last week's dramatic testimony from trayvon's mother, sabrina fulton. she told the court it was absolutely her son's voice yelling for help in the background of a neighbor's 911 call, but mr. martin previously said that it wasn't his son's voice, it was key testimony. at the heart of the issue whether or not zimmerman acted, as he claims, in self-defense. since the prosecution rested its case on friday, the defense has already called about a dozen witnesses, including zimmerman's mother, who said late friday that it was her son's voice on that tape, and not trayvon's. some ten witnesses took stand today and more are on the way. let's get to msnbc's craig melvin for the latest from the florida courthouse. craig? >> reporter: mi
